Subject: durlam-you're ok
in response to durlam's question "what is wrong with me?". The answer is "Nothing is WRONG with you. You are a dead-head. Embrace it, explore it, but know you'll never be able to explain it to non-heads or make them understand. It's all good and if they don't understand, screw 'em!" By the way this is a good show. It's just too bad their second wind ( from '89 to '91 ) didn't last longer
Subject: Why are these so good?
So ridiculous how easily taken I am by this. I love ’91 – so much of it just feels like this crazy, high-functioning machine. I even love all the nutty MIDI-guitar crap, the way-too-many-keyboards, the all-over-the-place levels… it just makes me smile. And don’t get me started on how cute it is when you hear Jerry & Bruce jamming out their obvious music-bonerz for each other.
One of the most interesting things about it to me is how I can play this stuff for non-head friends and they are completely unable to relate in any possible way to how someone could like this stuff. Maybe rightly so. But man, give me a ’91 soundboard on the right day – in all of its absurd glory -- and it’s like there’s nothing better out there. What is wrong w/ me?
Subject: might as well...
This was a fun show and a great four-night stretch at the Cap Center. A terrific first set, with Might as Well tacked on as an exclamation point -- maybe the highlight of the show. The Eyes->Foolish and Estimated>Gone are also terrific. Vocals are a little rough at points, but great jamming throughout. Post-space doesn't let up at all. Other One>Wharf>Sugar Mag. I'll take that any day of the week.
NOTE: Might as Well ends the first set, it does NOT begin the second (though that would have been cool).
